• The European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 activities: Routes of El legado andalusi

    The ROUTES OF EL LEGADO ANDALUSI has been awarded with the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 logo for the following activities:

     Zocos de al-Andalus

    25-26-27 May (Ugíjar) / 1-2-3 June (Almería)  

    Ugíjar, Almería (Spain)

    The souk was during the time of al-Andalus a public space where people could exchange goods and ideas. It was a meeting point par excellence in the Andalusian life. A place where people of different confessions could interact and mix.

    The activity organized by the El Algado Andalusian Foundation in the cities of Ugíjar and Almería is the recreation of a traditional medieval souk with its stalls, the smells and aromas of the time, the daily bustle, with characters that will make you travel in time to a crucial moment in the history of Europe. An intercultural meeting with the history of al-Andalus.
